Stuart and Maria (Sligo 1/10/04)

We just got married on the 1st of October and are now back from our honeymoon. Wanted to say a huge thanks for being so accommodating in the booking process and such a professional, energetic and friendly bunch on the night. All our guests are still talking about it and I think you may be getting some bookings from our friends. Thanks a million.

Booking process
Excellent – very easy and well managed. I particularly liked the personal touch: as well as business, little jokes and banter as we went along! Also, your answers came quickly, which is always a great help where wedding preparations are involved. Well done here!
Prices
Very competitive, as they say. I was talking to David Hammond before the wedding and happened to mention that we’d booked you. He said you were very reasonable, especially considering what you were offering (meaning instruments and number in the band) – so praise indeed from the horse’s mouth, so to speak!
Equipment
Very good. The one thing we’d been a little concerned about beforehand, to be honest,was your amplification – so many ceilidhs we’ve attended have been too loud for comfort – but it was spot on.
Music
Just what we wanted! We were particularly impressed by the way your handled the dance arranged by the Scottish folk. Hope you enjoyed it, too!
Caller
Great fun!
Other comments
The above is singularly lacking in adverse criticism, I know – but this isn’t because we’re scared of insulting you!! It’s simply because you fulfilled all our expectations – and to have Scottish dance champions sing your praises, too, means that you were GOOD (maybe I should say, in modern terminology, “COOL”)! Many thanks once more: we’d book you again!With very best wishes to you all from all of us,

10/10- They came all the way from Northern Ireland and were fantastic. I am sure there must be other ceili bands around in Ireland, but I couldn’t find one that had samples to listen to on-line at the time, so I took the “safe route” and booked Haste to the Wedding.
